Godwoman guns down woman: Sadhvi Deva Thakur turns murderer, kills woman in firing, now absconding

Sadhvi Deva Thakur who is known for her firebrand speeches is now facing murder charges.

In a marriage function in Haryana, she began firing and this led to a woman's death.

Deva Thakur is now on the run. She has a murder case registered against her.

The Sadhvi, who is a Hindu Mahasabha leader, is known for her inflammatory speeches.

The latest incident has occurred in Karnal in Haryana.

She was invited to the marriage ceremony. She began firing and a gunshot caused the death.

A girl was also injured in the firing. Deva Thakur and half-a-dozen others who accompanied her, had been armed. The marriage function hall owner said that he had informed police as soon as firing began, as this is not allowed.

Deva Thakur had earlier caused controversy when she suggested that Muslims and Christians should be made to undergo sterilisation. She had also said that Hindu idols should be kept in mosques and churches.

Indian Express chief editor Raj Kamal Jha's journalism class to PM Narendra Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi got lessons in journalistic ethics and values at a function in Delhi.

The event was organised to give away the Ramnath Goenka awards for excellence in journalism.

After PM Modi's speech, Jha spoke at length about journalistic practices.

While audiences applauded Jha over his speech, PM Modi was cold and expressionless.

Jha recounted an incident--when a Chief Minister praised an Indian Express reporter's work, Goenka fired the journalist.

"Criticism from the government is a badge of honour for a journalist", he said.

Jha, in his vote of thanks said, "You (PM) also said a few wonderful things about journalists that makes us a little nervous....we have a generation of journalists who are growing up in an age of retweets and likes.."

The speech was applauded among journalists as Jha spoke with conviction. Just when NDTV has been banned for a day, Kashmir Reader has been shut down and journalists who question government are being branded 'anti-national', Jha's journalism class was needed.

Good work, Mr Jha.
